Carulli - Country dance


Today is Thanksgiving day in Canada! What better way than to make music and lead a merry dance?

This is a low G adaptation (some would say shameless, but I prefer "unabashed") of Carulli's merry tune.

Three TablEdited adaptations for baritone, low G and high G tunings (I may be going overboard here...)

Bossinensis - Ricercare


One ricercare composed by Bossinensis.

This adaptation is dedicated to my brother who, like Bossinensis is also named Francis(cus) and with whom I saw all those stupendous Vermeer paintings at the MET this week.
